the word needs a world-centric structure, that allows decisions to be 'deployed' simultaneously.
that's because no country or agenda has the power to undo the habits that destroy everything, because any country or agenda is locked into relationships of dependency in such a way, that it would 'remove' itself, by stepping out of line.
if you want your democratic voice to have a meaning, in regard to the ultimate issue of our wellbeing, as opposed to minor local issues, i would suggest you vote for the concept of simultaneous policies.
however people have prejudices about any structure, that integrates the whole, because they can't understand the difference between hierarchy and holarchy. so, for people to support such a world-centric structure, there needs to be a shift in this understanding. unfortunately people would rather risk our survival, than give up on their prejudices about novel suggestions, misperceiving them as something old, seeking security in cynicism or scepticism. so, what is needed more than anything is a sense of humility. look, your known ways have been tried, they are a part of the world as it is, and they are not transforming the world. known ways are players of the old polarity and the polarity is doomed. known ways won't sort things out. so give it up. become unknowing. think fresh, about what is needed. learn about integration. let's dedicate our souls or hearts to world-centricity.
It needs more focus on holistic education that includes critical thinking skills as well as inter/intra-personal understanding. The Dalai Lama is making some interesting efforts in this direction.

Schneizel's Damocles, to suspend the carnage that is the pursuit of personal interest for as long as it takes to implement a system that channels its natural drives to achieve worthwhile ends, and to keep the system intact afterwards.
What do you think the world needs now? In general but also what are your views about optimism and pessimism with respect to this question? Does the world need more pessimism or optimism now?
A benevolent despot.
Pessimism and optimism are both unbalanced approaches. We need realism. We need to identify and focus on basic common goals, and set aside the petty, superficial conflicts that stand in the way of that. The realism is necessary in part to expose these conflicts as indeed petty and counterproductive.
Hope is the denial of reality. It is the carrot dangled before the draft horse to keep him plodding along in a vain attempt to reach it. We should remove the carrot and walk forward with our eyes open. -- Raistlin Majere
